Interviews: Voltax

Ladies and gentlemen, I'm thrilled to introduce you to the Heavy Metal band Voltax from Mexico! These guys are known for their electrifying riffs and high-energy performances that will leave you headbanging all night long. Be sure to check out their Facebook page for more updates and news about their upcoming shows.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?

Originally the band was called Voltage, but that just lasted a few weeks until we came up with a better punchier name: VOLTAX, which basically wanted to transmit a discharge of heavy metal power.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

No one did back then in our city when we started the band, we felt that traditional Heavy Metal needed a real resurgence

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Yes we are long-time friends even before Voltax started, just Victor and Andy came later on in the history of the band, however, they feel now very close to us, and they really feel like part of the family.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Judas Priest, Accept, Merciful Fate, Iron Maiden, Thin Lizzy

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Mainly music from the 70s and 80s, but we do take influence from our day-to-day life too, all the good and bad moments we endure enrich our music, and we as musicians inspire each other when we come up with new music. Heavy Metal is an endless source of inspiration

6. Where was your last gig?

We recently had a mini tour in the central and north part regions of Mexico along with Condenados from Chile.

7. Where would you like to act?

We would love to come back to South America this year specially Colombia and Chile, and next year the USA of course!

Any kind of and that is true to their sound, no matter what genre, we are just interested in bands that take things seriously.

9. Whom not?

Any joke band out there which tries to act fun and silly.

10. Have any of you ever suffered from stage fright? Any tips for beginners on how to beat that?

Nowadays we enjoy the rush we get before we go on stage, no matter the size of the crowd, it is the same if we are the opening act for UDO or any other of the bands we worship or we are the headliner for the show.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Judas Priest, UFO, Rainbow, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Iron Maiden, Dissection, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Slayer, and the list could keep going and going. 

 12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

Play after the baptism of a baby.

We love them for being loyal to our music and Heavy Metal, and we appreciate them buying our merch, it contributes a lot to all the things involved with the band.

14. What do you think of our site?

We celebrate there are sites supporting underground music like this one, and we need more sites with a similar vision, it feels like a real free space to share our music, we thank you for it!

15. Something to add?
